Vaishali Singh 2nd Mar, 2020


Your first choice should be GIM then PGPM Great lakes and then TAPMI this choice is according to placement scenario and brand name of colleges. Rest for selecting colleges you should also keep in kind how much you want to invest i.e. the fees of the college. This will help you in deciding the college.
